Meowing Cat!!!!!!

I am writing in regards to my cat. She is black and white and is about 13 years old. She is a very healthy cat.  

She has recently moved out with me and has been in the new house for about 3 months now. She is in a habit of urinating in out pool room on the tiles. It is never in the same spot either. I have mopped the floor with vinegar and lemon juice thinking this would help but it hasn’t.

She has also in the last 2 weeks had a habit of meowing during the night. She sits next to the door so I let her out and then 5 minutes later she wants to come back in, then again out in 5 minutes and this continues. Sometime I feed her coz I think she is hungry but she then meows again straight after. I don’t know what to do as this keeps us up all night. I don’t want to get in the habit of hitting her either.

The meow is also a very long and sad meow, not like her usually ones. She is outside for most of the day when we are work as well then comes home when we get home from work.

Take her to the vet, she might have a urinary tract infection.

I agree with Annie, this sounds exactly like a UTI, cats are in alot of pain with this...they meow and they pee in inappropriate places this is their only way to telling you that IT HURTS....this has been going on for awhile now and I'm afraid if you don't do something very very soon it will be to late to save your kitty...the very same thing happened to me years ago, I didn't know anything was wrong and by the time I did see a Vet it was too late to save my darling Gus....please take her in immediately. and please keep us updated....♥

I also should have mentioned that they associate the pain with their litter boxes and thats why she goes other places and the cool tile is classic b/c tiles, sinks, concrete feel cool to her and if you've ever had a bladder infection yourself you'll understand how the coolness helps to temporarily soothe.....
lemon will NOT remove the scent from kitties sensitive noses, so after treating her UTI you will need to remove the scent from all the areas with an enzymatic cleaner avail thru a pet store..such as URINE OFF, ANTI ICKY POO or NATURES MIRACLE...otherwise kitty will still detect the smell and reuse thinking its a litter box...good luck hon, please get her to a Vet asap for a urinalysis....I'm really worried about her...♥
